M29 is generally believed to have been operated by Hungarian intelligence and transmitted from Budapest area. Morse code counterpart to G04. Last heard in 2003.

The transmission format is given below. The speed was 12 words per minute. One dash was used for zero, rather than five.

"VDE" was a bogus callsign, officially allocated to Canada. Note the complex preamble that G04 does not have. The same non-random encryption method as G04 was employed for the messages, see the G04 page for details.
